Hi George, and all.  Glad to hear that the weather has gotten back to normal
for y'all George.  We were much warmer than usual in July, then, the first
August, when it's usually unbearable here, it cooled off into the low to mid
90's with our usual high humidity (80 to 95 %).  Very little rain, but we
had a
breeze part of the time, and a couple of days, we even had highs only in the
upper 80's!  Our lows are typically in the 70's with a few nights (like last
when the low is in the 80's.  The tomatoes have set very little fruit with
the high
temps, but I'm hoping it picks up again as the weather should soon cool
We're still watering, although we had thunderstorms go near by us for the
3 afternoons.  The rain spit at us to let us know it was going by, but
fall here.

Have a safe trip and a great visit with your daughter and her family.  :-)

Happy Birthday, Joshua!  Congrats, George on having a grandson to be proud
That speaks well of his mother, and her parents.  ;-)

Hope everyone is having good gardening weather, and that we are all
children that our parents can be proud of.
